There's a cemetery deep below the sea;
There the space is reserved for fools like me.
Tried to kill myself at least a dozen times,
But nothing seemed to turn out right.

Now I'd rather wait a half-a-century
Soiling the bed all belligerent and wrinkly
Even when I go blind and lose my mind,
Nothing seems to turn out right.
Something's got to turn out right.

If you want, then when we die,
We'll ascend to some place way up high.
At the gate, they'll show you through.
If they ask me, I'm with you.

You're in my body,
You're, You're in my body.
You're in my body,
That's where I think about you.

In my body,
You're, you're in my body.
You're in my body,
That's where

There's no one that imagines like you,
So convinced there's somewhere that we go to;
Not a first-class trip to the abyss
Tell me, do you still feel this?
Tell me, do you still feel this?

As I drown in lakes of fire,
I will call your name as I expire.
It's the last thing that I'll do.
I will tell them I'm with you

You're in my body,
You're, you're in my body.
You're in my body,
That's where I think about you.

In my body,
You're, you're in my body.
You're in my body,
That's where

Falling asleep, asleep at the wheel
As I approach that cliff, I'm starting to feel
If you could wake me up with only a touch,
I could die with you. Life would be enough.

Falling asleep, asleep at the wheel
As I approach that cliff, I'm starting to feel
If you could wake me up with only a touch,
I could die with you. Life would be enough.

When I face the one who made
My disgusting heart from a lump of clay,
Should he ask what got me through,
If he asks me, it was you.

You're in my body,
You're, you're in my body.
You're in my body,
That's where I think about you.

In my body,
You're, you're in my body.
You're in my body,
That's where I think about you.

In my body,
You're, you're in my body.
You're in my body,
That's where I think about you.

    I think that the meaning to cemetery is that he has a never ending love for someone. She passed and or is gone but she is "in his body" (his mind) and that is where he remembers them. He is asking her if she still feels that you go somewhere or if you just travle to the abyss. (nothingness) and as he is dying he is calling out her name. So as he is dying "falling asleep, asleep at the wheel as i approach that cliff, i'm starting to feel if yu could wake me up with only a touch, i could die with you. Life would be enough" he is saying only if you could come back, your touch would wake me up, to know that you are here with me, life would be enough. Then he goes on to say "when i face the one who made my disgusting heart from a lump of clay, should he ask what got me through, if he asks me, it was you. " so when he dies, a true death, not suicide. This god or lord is asking him, "how did you surivie your horrid life? How come your here now? " he is saying what got him through life was this person.

    I just noticed this. At 3:27 it sounds like "god in my body" then he continues on with you're in my body.

    This song is about max falling in love with a religious woman. Even though he doesn't fully believe, himself, he just wants to end up with her in the afterlife (:

    Basically i see the max is saying that, the one he loves sole is inside of him; in his heart and mind.and that he doesnt believe in the god that she believes in. So when they die he would noramally go to hell. But she is going to be the reason he gets into heaven hes going to "tell them, im with you" and they are going to let him in because she saved him.

    He is obviously with someone who has a greater faith than himself (so convinced there's somewhere that we go to). When the time comes and they die he wants to spend eternity with the one he loves. Since his faith wasn't that strong he is saying he is with her so he hopefully can get into heaven and spend eternity with her (at the gate, they'll show you through.
    If they ask me, i'm with you). After all they are a piece of each other (you're, you're in my body) and she was the one that made him better and got him in to heaven (should he ask what got me through,
    If he asks me, it was you)
